Medical research at BGU covers the spectrum of human health, with emphasis on neurosciences, diabetes, cardio metabolic health, and cancer.

BGU is an important player in the international bio-medical research arena. Pioneering research is conducted by highly respected senior faculty, a cadre of young scientists returning to Israel from prestigious institutions, and exceptional graduate and postgraduate research fellows. Collaborations between the health, natural and engineering sciences foster an environment of research innovation. BGU’s commitment to community is reflected in research focusing on the health problems of the Negev, especially in the fields of genetics, nutrition and psychiatry.

“We dream of understanding adult stem cells to a level that enables us to make them stronger and more capable of transplant, and we also aim to generate them from a patient’s own cells.”
– Dr. Roi Gazit
